AND THE WINNERS WERE. . .
OLIVAS LINKS G.C. - 07/02/2020: A beautiful day lured a nice turn-out with the final tally
Burman Deshautelle
Mr. Deshautelle
listing 15 member competitors, one guest, and three cancellations. Brian Oblak led the day's scoring with a sizzling 77 to take the Super Low Gross award and a single blind-birdie payout for a $32 total, however Burman Deshautelle's $48 winnings actually topped the money list with TWO blind-birdies and the Super Gross runner-up spot. Val Mayer's name shows up in 2nd Place on the money list with $34 extracted from his laudable 1st Places in both Low Net & Low Putts and a Partners 2nd fashioned from an 86 Gross score that would also have tied for Porter Low Gross if he had deigned to enter that wager category. The fourth blind-birdie payout went to Bill Lewis who added a Partners 3rd for a $25 take. The Partners 1st Place and 2nds in both Net & Putts earned $18 for Bruce Simon while a trio of 2nd Placings in Porter Gross, Partners & Putts paid out $11 to Tom Knickerbocker. The Porter Low Gross winner was Bob Stone worth an even Ten Bucks. Marilou Miller pocketed $9 from her Partners 1st Place and tie for 3rd Low Net leaving Jim Jacobs' $5 for 3rds in Net and Partners as the final entry on the day's money list.
WESTLAKE G.C. - 07/09/2020: This venue welcomed an 18-player turnout that was dominated by Burman Deshautelle's sensational 3-Under-Par 64 Gross score and $86 wager winnings that easily claimed the Super Low Gross title by a sizable 5-shot margin along with taking the Low Putts and a bag of birdie booty. Porter Low Gross winner was Bob Stone who pocketed $45 by adding a tie for Low Net, Partners 3rd Place, and some shared birdie loot. Craig Fehrman rejoined the competition after a lengthy layoff to pickup a solo birdie worth $26 while a $21 payout went to Gordon Crook for Low Putts runner-up and a shared birdie. Mike Belson tied Mr. Stone for the day's Low Net that led to a Partners 1st Place and $19 in Mike's wallet. The Super Gross runner-up spot and a Partners !st Place sent $14 to Ron Troncatty. Runner-up spots in both Porter Gross & Partners were worth $11 for Tom Knickerbocker. A pair of 3rds in both Net & Partners rewarded John Moskoff with a modest $9 and Brian Oblak's $3 for Partners 3rd Place concluded the wager winners. At this venue Member Qualifier Mr. Pat Gallagher, sponsored by Tom Knickerbocker, completed his required qualifying rounds and is welcomed to The Group with an initial 21.0 Handicap Index.
ENCINO MUNI G.C. - 07/16/2020: The unprecedented outcome of this day's competition shows that every player who entered the wager pots actually received some share of the loot however modest beginning with Jeff Sable's even $50 for some major birdie booty, 2nd Low Putts(tie),and 3rd Partners(tie). Next was Bob Stone's $43 for 1st Places in both Porter Low Gross and Partners, 2nds in Low Net and Low Putts(tie) and 1/2 birdie share followed by Brian Oblak's $24 for winning Low Putts and 2nd Places in Super Gross and Partners. Miguel Romero claimed $22 for a solo blind birdie and $21 went to Burman Deshautelle who posted a sensational 73 Gross to claim the Super Low Gross award for the second week in a row along with his 2nd in Low Putts(tie), 3rd in Partners, and a shared birdie. Ted Winship snared $14 by winning Low Net and John Moskoff picked up $11 from a Partners 1st & Net 3rd. Single digit dollar winners were Tom Knickerbocker($7) for Porter Gross runner-up & Partners 3rd; Marilou Miller($5) for Partners 3rd & Low Putts 2nd(tie) and a single dollar each to Mike Belson, Craig Fehrman, Bill Lewis, and Ron Troncatty for whatever.
BUENAVENTURA G.C. - 07/23/2020: The milder Ventura climate lured an 18-player field, matching our recent Westlake turnout. Today's big bucks went to Craig Fehrman who collected $64 from a double dose of birdie booty along with a tie for Partners 2nd Place. Gordon Crook's $48 take was accumulated from 1st Place in Low Putts, 2nd in Super Low Gross and a solo birdie. The Porter Low Gross winner was Bob Stone who also nabbed the Low Net prize for a $28 total. Val Mayer's $25 payout resulted from a shared birdie and 2nd Places in both Net and Partners. Bill Lewis shared Val's birdie and took Partners 1st Place for $21. Tom Knickerbocker's $16 take listed 2nds in both Porter Gross & Partners plus a 3rd Net. Ten Bucks went to Kevin Crook as runner-up to his Pappy's Low Putts award. Jim Jacobs was partnered up with "Boom Boom" Lewis in 1st Place paying out $8. Low Round of the Day, a solid 75, was posted by Brian Oblak to take the Super Low Gross title by a 4-shot margin but worth only a modest $6 without any other placings. And finally a Partners 2nd Place tie sent $4 to Jeff Sable.
SIMI HILLS G.C. - 07/30/2020: Somehow we managed to stage five well-attended events this month in spite of all the restrictions and adjustments. This day it was somewhat unusual that just 7 players divvied up the entire wager pot proceeds led by Bob Stone's huge $80 extraction that was accumulated from multiple shares of birdie booty, a tie for Porter Low Gross, and a Partners 3rd Place. It was one of our newest members,Jeff Sable (see GIGS & STUFF), who joined that tie for Porter Low Gross while also taking 1st Places in both Partners and Putts plus a 3rd Low Net to pocket a tidy $44. The Low Net award saluted John Moskoff's stunning 61 which earned $34 when added to his Partners 1st Place and Low Putts runner-up. Burman Deshautelle turned the Super Gross runner-up spot and the remaining bootie loot into a $30 take. The Super Low Gross winner was Brian Oblak whose only other marks were both a Partners 2nd Place and double-dip 3rd Place for a $13 total. Mike Belson's likewise stunning 62 Net earned the Low Net runner-up spot worth an even Ten Bucks while Ted Winship's $7 came from a Partners 2nd Place and tie for 3rd Low Net. As an added note, Brian's guest player, Jack Stumpas pocketed $28 from the birdie pot.
GIGS & STUFF. . .
Had a conversation with Mike Gannon who has been missing from the tour for forever. He is healthy, but suffering from a hand problem that renders him unable to control a golf club. He wishes us all good health and will return when the doctors come up with a solution. Good luck Mike! -- Tom Knickerbocker has introduced two new members to the group, Jeff Sable & Pat Gallagher.
Jeff Sable
Mr. Sable
Jeff is an actor and acting coach. He co-directed, produced and starred in a film for his own company, "Life At The Resort" which is available on Amazon. A portion of the proceeds will go to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's research. He's prepping a new film, "Widow's Song" and only needs about three mil to get it done. He and wife Pam live in Glendale with their two cats.
Pat Gallagher
Mr. Gallagher
He came in at a 14.6 index which after four rounds he has already reduced to the current 13.9 he will bring to his next round. -- Mr. Gallagher is a retired college professor, originally from Salem, Oregon who at the age of six would follow his father around the golf course and at nine really took up the game. He went to college at Western Washington U., got his Masters at U. of Washington and his P.H.D. at U. of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. His field of study is early childhood and Special Ed. He taught at Purdue, U. Of Illinois, Chicago, U. of Cincinnati, Kansas, and ended up at U.S.C. He and his wife, Karen, who is the Dean of Education at U.S.C., live in Mount Washington. Initially following his five qualifying rounds Pat was a 21.0 index and after his first two official efforts has settled into a more comfortable 17.7. -- August once again is Jim birthday month, Raymond on the 14th, Jacobs on the 25, chalking up a significant number, and Dodds the 30th.
